Audi Shark Concept

March 3, 2009


The Audi Shark is a futuristic flying concept vehicle with a streamlined design inspired by motorcycles and airplanes. It was designed by Kazim Doku and won the Desire Competition by Domus Academy.

The two-seater flying sportscar is inspired by the world of motorclycles and airplanes and offers its passengers “strong sensations and high levels of safety.”

The streamlined design of the exterior offers a visual reference to the car’s name and – in combination with the rear lower spoiler – gives the vehicle an “underwater” appearance.

Both the headlights and the tail lights are made by transparent tubes which integrate LED units. The interior features sporty seats integrated in the cockpit structure.

It is the raw ‘core’ or center of a motorcycle… the motorcycle is effectively turned inside-out with its architecture completely exposed.

Stephen Williams’ Snake-oil Sales Van: “inspired by the wagons used by traveling salesmen (snake-oil sales men) in the ‘Wild West’ of America. In the 19th century these wagons were used to transport and sell fake medicines and shoddy goods. This version replaces the pair of horses that would pull the wagon with two Honda C90 motorcycles linked together.”
